A Blog Announcement

17 Sep

Hi!

Things have been absolutely crazy around here lately. I miss blogging more often and hopefully I will be able to get into a better routine with it soon as right now I’m still adjusting to this new life.

Take yesterday for instance:

8:00- wake up, get ready, eat breakfast

9:00- go to chemistry lecture

10:00- eat early lunch before lab time

11:00- chemistry lab (3 hours…ack!)

2:00- nutrition class (first exam next monday!)

4:00- get school things sorted out from the day and knock out some homework

5:00- sneak in a quick circuit workout to de-stress!

6:00- head down to the cafe for dinner (last night I had thai basil fire roasted tilapia, fire roasted homemade salsa, roasted potato cubes, and salad bar…ummm, yes please!)

7:00- get dolled up and head out for some social time!

Too late- crash in my bed and be asleep within two seconds

Whew, I get tired just typing that out! I have been go, go, go since I got here and I’m sure eventually I will get used to it, but wow, it’s a huge change from my schedule back at home. I used to be spoiled with lots of down time, but it seems like there is always something to do, either work/school related or just fun stuff. And I don’t plan on missing out so lets hope my body can keep up!

BLOG ANNOUNCEMENT:

I wanted to let everyone know that I have been working on a blog change for quite some time now and it should happen in the near future (probably a week or two.)  I have been thinking a lot lately about what direction I want my blog to take and how I want to continue forward with it. Some negative feedback that I received a few weeks back actually made me feel pretty strongly about changing my blog to private…and I did…for 2 days.  But I have since realized that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. I blog because I love to. I blog about the things I love. If you like it, great! If you don’t, that’s fine, too. I am realizing that I’m not going to be able to please everyone I come across…and with that, I’m learning to be okay about it.

So: about those changes! It’s something I have been playing around with for a while and I’m almost ready for it. First off, my blog with NOT be private. I’m happy with what I do here and don’t want to hide it!  I will be blogging at a new website, with my own domain name! And the blog name will be changing…slightly. You all will have to wait and see! I’m hoping to just revamp the blog and give it a bit more of a professional feel. Another change will *hopefully* be a new commenting system as well, so you all will get replies by me sent to your email. I am really excited about this and hope that you all will follow me on over to my new blogging home. I have made many good friends and would would hate to lose any of you as readers!

Surprise, surprise, I’m out of time again. It’s game day here in Cat Town and things are absolute madness. PURPLE EVERYWHERE!!!

I am about to head out for some tailgating before the game. Anyone one else taking part in the football action today?! I never know what’s going on, but I still like to go! Then half time comes around and I’m perfectly content to leave. LOL.

Have a great weekend, whatever you do!

Kristi

    How exciting!! Best decision I ever made was going to self-hosted 🙂

    I’m so excited about all your new changes. I know it’s going to be amazing because of the strenth you found to realize that negative comments have nothing to do with you.
    As bloggers, we put ourselves out there honestly, for the world to see and do with what they please. Of course, there is nothing worse than hearing negative comments, but it is important to realize, as you did, that they mean only as much as we put into them. I, too blog for me, and as long as we hold onto the good things that blogging brings, it will keep being amazing.

    I went through the same thing this summer (probably not exact same) I was getting negative feedback, hurtful comments (even hurtful emails and facebook messages!), so, I too, made my blog private, but it’s not fair to us who love to blog! You go girl 🙂 KEEP blogging ❤ you are wonderful. Be strong and confident 🙂 So many people didn't understand how I felt, it really hurts getting nasty comments, but I guess if we are putting ourselves "out into the blog world" we have to be prepared for anything 😦 It's not fair, people should keep rude things to themselves, but they don't. I am SO proud of you for continuing your blog 🙂 Much of the same thing I did!! 🙂 Your story and decisions sounded much like mine 😀 It made me feel like I wasn't alone on this ❤ xoxo

    Once again,

    I am very proud of you 🙂

    negative comments- urghhh NOT COOL! but you know what, i am so happy that you said “feck off” and didnt let them get to you and make you go private. im definitely going to be following you at your new location!!

    xoxo ❤

  20. Susie September 19, 2011 at 5:07 am #

    I tried to read your blog the another day and it was private. I was like, nooooo! Glad I can read it again. 🙂

  21. pbbrittany September 19, 2011 at 7:03 pm #

    I’m sorry to hear about the negative comments you’ve received! (I haven’t gotten any, thank goodness). But, I’m so excited that you’re getting your own domain! Can’t wait to see how it turns out 😀

  22. lapiattini September 19, 2011 at 11:39 pm #

    Good luck with all your blog changes. I’m happy to hear it won’t be private. I feel ya on getting adjusted to a new schedule- I’m a teacher and the school year just started. It’s hard to fit in blogging. But you’re so right- blog because you love it!

  23. Sarah - feeedingbrainandbody September 20, 2011 at 12:52 am #

    Those three hour labs always take a huge chunk out of the day. The sucks yours is right over lunch hour! That’s so exciting about the blog announcement, I can’t wait to see your new site 🙂

  24. Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen September 20, 2011 at 12:49 pm #

    The best thing to remember when blogging? My motto:

    “It’s my blog. I do what I want.”

    No one can take it away from you because it’s YOURS! 🙂

  25. keepnthefaith September 20, 2011 at 1:48 pm #
